Image Critique and Q&A

In lieu of a speaker for August we are going to pool together our wisdom, our opinions, and yes, maybe our ignorance.

Do you have an image that seems slightly off, but can’t quit put your finger on it? Let us look at it. Someone in the group is sure to have some ideas on how to improve it. You can show your image anonymously or talk about what bothers you about it. We’ll follow strict rules about making suggestions that are helpful and encouraging. We are going to try and do suggested edits live so bring images that are 2400 pixels or longer on the long side.

Do you have questions about photography gear, techniques, or methods? Bring those, too. Our group has a wealth of experience from vastly different backgrounds. Surely someone will have an answer or be able to point you in the right direction.

The last time we did this it was a large success so come on out and join in the discussions.

Please have a folder for your critique image and a separate folder for challenge images.
